it is clear naman to the informed public that the celibate bishops and priests plus fundamentalist preachers like mike velarde who insist that contraception is a kind of abortion and therefore evil are LYING, no ifs or buts about it.
what’s not clear is, where do they get the gumption to lie like this? what makes them so fearless, even so certain, that they speak a truth?
after some googling my theory is that they’re taking their cue from the u.s. of a., no less, where matagal nang may population management at matagal nang legal ang abortion ngunit hindi pa rin sumusuko ang mga pro-life, lalo na ang bush administration, sa pagkontra sa mga pro-choice.
ang latest strategy ng bush administration is a proposal of the department of health and human services to re-define abortion to include all kinds of contraception and, guided by this, to allow anti-abortion health practitioners to refuse to make contraception available to women in need.
the proposed new definition of abortion:
any of the various procedures — including the prescription, dispensing and administration of any drug or the performance of any procedure or any other action — that results in the termination of the life of a human being in utero between conception and natural birth, whether before or after implantation.”
of course imbiyerna ang mga pro-choice, unang una na si hillary clinton:
The Bush administration is up to its old tricks again, quietly putting ideology before science and women’s health. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is poised to put in place new barriers to accessing common forms of contraception like birth control pills, emergency contraception and IUDs by labeling them ‘abortion.’ These proposed regulations set tobe released next week will allow healthcare providers to refuse to provide contraception to women who need it. We can’t let them get away with this underhanded move to undermine women’s health and that’s why I am sounding the alarm.”
wow, we sure could use a hillary clinton to take on the lying celibates and preachers in this overpopulated part of the world. compared to a giant like hillary, gma who loves the bishops and whose spiritual adviser is mike velarde is truly a midget of underhanded and unqualified proportions.
